This important book offers the best available entry into the burgeoning
field of health and human rights. Edited by two physicians and two lawyers,
the book gathers in a single volume 30 articles, all previously published
in the 1990s, divided among six sections. The book is dedicated to one of
its coeditors, the late Dr Jonathan Mann, who before his tragic death in 1998
was widely considered the most visionary and effective individual committed
to advancing this relatively young field.
